Ahh yes CHANGE, just like the kind of change cancer creates a healthy body.

Watch the doggy don't look over here.......................


Lost amid all of the jubilation of the Obama victory was the announcement by the Obama transition team that it had set up a separate transition program beyond the one that is paid for by the American taxpayer. Called the "Obama/Biden Transition Project," it is a 501(c)4 tax-exempt organization, with no limits on the contributions it can receive and no requirements to divulge the names of individuals or organizations that give it money.

No one is certain that any political organization has ever set up a tax-exempt entity that would be shrouded in such secrecy, particularly when Obama claimed he would be more transparent about the way things were done.

NICE! President elect for 3 days and already setting up his "Skull and Crossbones" society. Getting caught and reported on within 3 days is pretty classic. I hope that the crawler keeps its eye on this cause it smacks of illegality.

So much for a Tranparent administration.

You can add North Carolina to the list, as well as one more Senate seat (big shout out to Oregon!). Of course, the best thing I saw this past Tuesday was that at more than one point, the networks listed Arizona as "too close to call." Beautiful.

I cannot wait until we can start repairing some of the damage that Bush has done to this country over the past seven-plus years.

I wonder if he can take office a few months early? I don't think anyone would mind...

The Plan: Big ideas for America

Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, President-Elect Barack Obama's choice for chief of staff in his incoming administration, is co-author of a book, The Plan: Big Ideas for America, that calls for, among other things, compulsory service for all Americans ages 18 to 25. The following excerpt is from pages 61-62 of the 2006 book:


Compulsory service. You mean like "slavery"? Wait 'til all the starry-eyed young Obama supporters find out what kind of changes he hopes for them personally.

Hey, life might not be so bad in the Tonton Macoutes.

For one thing, you'll get to wear a nifty armband...
